Deputies seized heroin and Fentanyl from a Kingsport man last week as a result of a traffic stop on a vehicle that crossed the fog line and hit the rumble strips multiple time on Highway 11-W in Church Hill.
HCSO Deputy Isaac Hutchins stated in his report he responded to a complaint of a possible intoxicated driver on Aug. 20, after which he observed a 2002 GMC Yukon matching the suspects vehicle description traveling 35 mph in a 55 mph.
Hutchins said the Yukon “could not stay in its lane of travel.” Upon conducting a traffic stop Hutchins identified the driver as Charles Phillip Broome, 43, 245 Royal Drive, Kingsport.
Hutchins reported that Broome was lethargic and had trouble keeping his eyes open, and dropped something on the floor board before exiting the vehicle. Broome stated he’d taken prescription Buprenorphine and Klonopin, and was unable to perform a field sobriety test due to a brain surgery he’d undergone as a result of a previous a vehicular crash.
Broome told Hutchins “there shouldn’t be” anything illegal in the vehicle. Hutchins reported finding a rubber glove on the floorboard which contained three “Krazy Glue” containers.
Hutchins reported funding five baggies of heroin and one baggie of Fentanyl in the glue bottles, as well as two half-pills, a cut straw, and three syringes.
Broome agreed to a blood draw for testing, but staff at the Hawkins County Memorial Hospital were unable to perform a blood draw due to vein damage caused by intravenous drug use, Hutchins said.
Broome was arraigned Sept. 1 on charges including four counts of drug possession, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm with an altered serial number, DUI second offense, driving on the wrong side of the road and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $3,000 bond and has a preliminary hearing set for Sept. 15.
